It drains the battery with the bike running or when the bike is off or both?

correct. I have read some other stories about the same situation.It sounds like the bike only charges the battery at 3000rpm or above.I am just trying to learn what I can about it. The firefly does have two bulbs insted of just one,and is superbright but I still can't imagine why the charging system would'nt keep up.

Well for starter, remove one of the bulbs and see what the difference is, 70 watts is a lot of power to draw off the factory stator. I run a single dual watt bulb, low beam is like 20W and the high bean is like 60W, the high beam over draws on the battery but i've had no problems with the low beam on my wifes 225.
